Mango Strawberry Salsa

I think spring is finally here! Granted the forecast is calling for rain every day this week, but April showers bring May flowers right? I'm just happy all the snow is finally gone and I don't have to put on forty layers to walk outside. Doesn't everyone always look thinner in the spring? I'm telling you it's all those layers!

While I am happy spring is here I miss summer and most of all summer fruits. Nothing beats fresh summer strawberries or watermelon. Watermelon makes me think of beach days and I could definitely use a few of those! The tan I got in Maui is long gone and I'm back to pasty white, sigh. 

If you're longing for summer I have just the thing to cheer you up, mango strawberry salsa! I included it as part of my meal prep for the week with lemon herb chicken and roasted asparagus and grape tomatoes. The fruit is perfectly sweet and the onion gives it a kick that will have you longing for warm summer days!
